    You're right ! It's from a Martini action, and my piece is from a Martini-Enfield .303 conversion. I've only had to wait nearly 50 years to identify it

    Coincidentally, the junkshop where I found it was just a couple of miles from the old RSAF at Enfield.......

    The 3 ring cast black powder bullets are from around the 1860s, at least that what i read when looking into it.

    Well if you found so many in one area i would say could only be linked to an event unless was some sort of range

    I only found isolated one so maybe was from singular action or used in hunting..... Any old find is great to me

    The markings are '2.P.' with crossed pennants, 'W.D. 303' with Broad Arrow, '74E' beneath Kings Crown.

    I bought it in a junk shop in the mid-1960s and have never researched it. The machining is of good quality and somehow I've always assumed that it's part of a Bren mechanism. If that is the case, I wonder if yours - with its very minor differences, could be from a Czech ZB26 ?
    The give-away to this being from a Martini-Henry are the markings. E.g., the crowned number over an 'E' is an Enfield inspector's mark.
